So a few weeks ago I removed my cluster from my 1990 325I in an attempt to repair my fuel gauge and my temp gauge. The first fix I did I managed to fix the fuel gauge, speedo still worked, but the temp gauge still didn’t work. So this time I dissembled it further to take the temp gauge out to...

Recently i noticed when i turn the key to the off position (11 o'clock) and take it out, my radio, wipers, lights and odometer will still be on, even after i open the door, shut the door, and lock the car.
if i disconnect the battery and reconnect it...
Hi, helpful folks. The speedometer and odometer are out on my 1985 535i. As a starting point, I want to replace the sender. The info I've found online and in Bentley is confusing: some say the sender is in the differential, and others refer to the "speed sensor" in the transmission housing...
I'm coming back to the forum hopefully for some advice people might be able to provide regarding the odometer and cluster. Perhaps readers have an idea what could be wrong or have experience of the problem. I have a BMW 524 Turbo Diesel from 1989.
A while back in January, I...
New to the forums. I have owned many BMW's over the years (26 to be exact), but I am on my first classic and it has been a couple of years since I have had a project car.
I am looking for advice as to where to start on getting my instruments for my 1987 E30 convertable working properly...
I know that when service is performed and recorded that it shows the service performed and mileage in a CarFax report. But how is Carfax seeing my daily mileage? Every day mileage on Carfax site goes up a few more miles. Is my car reporting this information? If so, can it be turned off...
I saw a different reading on my car when I started it ( like 12k miles ).
It disappeared soon and then my actual mileage (~90k) showed up. Can someone tell me what is this additional reading that showed up after starting the car ?
Hi everyone. Starting to bang my head against the wall... harder than usual. About a month ago I went to drive my 1987 325. I don't drive it all that often, maybe 5k miles a year or so. It has 80,xxx miles. As I was driving I noticed the speedo, odometer and econometer were not working. The...
Hey there, I have an obvious instrument cluster problem. I have an e36 1996 318i. My speedometer, odometer, temperature, fuel, and mpg gauges are not working at all. They're all at zero, car running or not. They were working fine until I did some work in the door. Here's the sequence of events...
2000 z3 2.3
went to check to see if the tamper light was on for the odometer (it wasn't) and came across the clock light and 3/4 full guage. when I turned the car on, the lights went off... what does that mean? Does something need to be changed and how do I reset it afterward?
I've got an 88 325i that i got for super cheap. No surprise to me, this car has many things wrong with it. I will no doubt come to you guys since I'm cheap and somewhat like to learn.
My question though, is I have a mess of wiring underneath my steering column. I think there my be a short...
I have BMW 328I 2000 make and while driving one day suddenly all lights on my cluster started flickering. I tried shutting down the engine but it did not stop so disconnected the negative battery terminal and then put it back.
The cluster was fine after I did this but I noticed my odometer...
When i hold down the trip reset for about 5 seconds to launch the hidden menu in the dash all of the readings state the following:
Eng oil ?? 0
fr. Brake ?? 0
microfil ?? 0
r. Brake ?? 0
br. Fluid ?? 0
sp. Plug ?? 0
v. Check ?? 0
anyone know why this is...
My odometer and trip meter stopped counting correctly; they're counting slowly. Relatedly, I think, a few days ago, the speedo went out.
I know the speedo is a wheel sensor gone bad. Is the odometer situation related? Is it the same sensor (R/R)? Should I just replace all four...
I have problems with the pixels of my odometer - this is a common problem on E39 525dA
Now i would like to read the odometer via the information of the OBD.
I have a OBD2 / bluetooth interface and Torque pro on an Android tablet.
Can anyone help me to find a way to read the odometer on...
My 2001 Z3 Roadster's tach had been very flaky, but not trusting my own skills taking apart delicate instruments, I purchased for $90 a used cluster on Craigslist, had it installed into my Z3, then sent off my original cluster to BimmerOnly in California. The temporary cluster worked perfectly...
I recently replaced my odometer gears this morning and reinstalled the instrumental panel in the same manner that I took it out. I took it for a test drive hoping to see the small rise in miles, but there was no change! I thought that I may have damaged the motor in the process of removing the...
I'm replacing the dash cluster and the replacement has a different odometer reading (160K) than my current one (275K). I'd like to keep things accurate. Is there any way to sync the replacement to the original to keep the mileage accurate?
I have just purchased a 2000 BMW 323 Ci.
On the dash I see a "Check Engine" Symbol alongside a negative number (-7700)
Can anyone explain what this means and the way to fix it?
The car won't pass the safety test otherwise,
Thank you very much in advance
